A small peek at some of our latest work. It seems that the elements (no pun intended!) have influenced the themes of these pieces, with the moon and its pull and tug on the ocean being prominent in the artists’ thoughts.
In Asta’s latest piece, entitled ‘Squall’, she has used clouds of wool and silk fibres to great effect, recreating a brooding and tumultuous ocean bashing the shoreline, in colours ranging from cerulean to deep indigo.
Colleen was inspired by the phases of the moon in a series of two works, produced on hand made paper. The colours used are tones of greys, plums and aubergine creating a atmospheric, moody, moon – sometimes bright but at other times brooding. Colleen used dyes and metallic medium, hand and machine stitch on beautiful paper. The framing on these pieces is well chosen to add to the unusual colour and tone of the work.
And then to the calmer, lighter mood of Marie’s piece which draws its inspiration from the edge of the ocean – the beautiful glass stones or pebbles washed up on a shoreline in Portugal. This work is delicate and beautifully simple with restful, pastel tones on a wet felted merino wool and silk ground.
All of these works are currently on exhibit at Las Rada Wine and Tapas Bar, Naas, Co. Kildare.
